Three Years!

Hello! Just thought I'd drop in on this fine Friday the 13th to say that it's now officially been three years since I started this fair old blog. That feels like a really long time for me Usually two years is the point at which I start to give up on things, so I think I can count this blog as a personal success. And I thought I should do something to commemorate it seeing as I completely forgot last year.. Whoops. No giveaways or anything, though, sorry... I would love to be able to give something proper back to all of you lovely people, but I can't. Maybe next year, though! (if I remember...)

So instead, I thought I'd just do a sentimental, Oscar speech-esque thank you post because that seems like the appropriate (and slightly douchey) thing to do.

Thank you to the blogging community, especially the UK lot, for making me feel welcome and at home in the blogosphere, and for not running away if we met in real life (what with my frizzy hair and stupid t-shirts and face and scruffy jeans and awkwardness and overenthusiastic mother). Thanks for not making me feel lame and annoying. It means a lot. Also, you're all really cool, great people, and I feel really lucky to know you :)

Thank you, publishers and publicists, for similar reasons, but also (fairly obviously) for sending me books. I don't know if you quite got the message over the past three years, but I *quite* like books. I don't like to make a big deal of it or anything, but y'know... ;)

Thank you, authors, for writing books that make me want to write about them. Thanks for writing books, full stop. Books change lives. What you do is amazing, whatever kind of books you write. Please don't stop.

Thank you to the beautiful readers of my blog. It's nice to know that people are reading and are at the very least mildly interested in what this 17 year old has to say about books 'n' stuff.

Thank you, Legend of Korra, for premiering your second season on this most auspicious of days.

Well, not only was that cheesy and pretentious, it was also a lot shorter than I thought it would be. In my head, this was going to be a really nice post. Clearly, I didn't really give it as much thought as I should have done. Oh well. 

(But seriously, thank you loads and loads and loads it really means a lot. I never thought that I when I started blogging it would end up meaning this much to me, but it's become a really big part of my life and it's probably one of the better things I've decided to do. I've been through a lot of blogging funks lately, and I don't think that'll stop anytime soon because I've reached that part of my life where I'm probably going to be busy until I, like, retire, but I always come back. Sometimes I think about shutting the whole thing down, but I just can't. It'd be all wrong. So, you know, thanks. Again.)



  1. I don't think it's at all douchey to say thanks :)
